Hiram Dickenson and E. J. Belden were establishing a circulating library in Whitehall.
The books were to be loaned from Baldwin and Bascom’s insurance office over the
Merchants National bank. The books were purchased and comprised of standard works of
the day. A reasonable price per day was to be charged.
